Why we visited Dubai and India : I went along with Pri, who was visiting home and decided to make a trip out of it!

Dubai 1  Our trip across the Dubai desert in a beat-up Jeep.
We thought we were going to die from the way it bounced on the dunes!

Dubai 2We visited some very friendly, though ungraceful, camels.
Note the one stumbling drunkenly behind Pri.

Dubai 3Refreshments at the desert outpost.
Note the timer – Pri and I communicate mainly by Snapchat, but fortunately, I keep the best ones of hers.

Dubai 5Saying cheers from the top of the world.

Far too much effort and discussion went into guessing how many Empire State Buildings would fit inside of it.

Drinks in Dubai cost $20 apiece and are always watered down, but at least the views are nice.

Delhi 1The sweltering heat at Humayun’s Tomb here became a monsoon an hour later.

Agra 3Many people still worship at the temple in Fatehpur Sikri.
In India, everything collides, the sacred and the mundane frequently coexisting within a single place.

People say you have to visit once in your life and they are right!
